Holistic Topical Medicine | Dr. Kathy Veon
Why Try Topical Medicine for Modern Healing?
Topical medicine therapies are common in both holistic and allopathic medicine systems. Common topical remedies used in both Chinese Medicine and Western Allopathic Medicine include:
- Lu Gan Shi (Calamine)
- Bai Fan (Alum)
- Zhang Nao (Camphor)
- Liu Huang (Sulfur)
Less commonly known therapies including mineral and homeopathic preparations used for wound healing, skin and eye health, and acupuncture meridian healing include:
Medicinal Mud Therapy
Pelotherapy has long been used for detoxifying tissue and promoting healing. The high cation exchange and osmotic pulling effect draws out toxins and heavy metals while eliminating pain and reduces the load on the immune system. Medicinal mudpacks increase micro-circulation, lymph flow, nerve flow, and cellular energy flow so the body can repair and heal with less obstruction. Increased mobility, reduced pain, reduced scar tissue, repair of damaged tissue, and improved organ and gland function have been observed as an outcome of pelotherapy in clinical tests.
The need for mud packs can be determined by testing trauma sites for Interference Fields (IF’s). An IF can develop after any trauma has occurred to the body. Surgery scars, broken bones, falls and accidents, head trauma, dental surgery, body piercings and tattoos are all examples of tissue trauma that can lead to an IF on the body. The tissue surrounding an IF often accumulates toxins and heavy metals, reducing the flow of energy, nutrients and nerve impulses to that area.
IF’s also affect other organs and glands in the body. For example, a tailbone injury may eventually reflex to the kidneys and adrenal glands, suppressing their function. The person finds that no matter how many nutrients or medications they take, the kidneys and adrenal glands never seem to function optimally. They are always fatigued, have hormonal imbalances or edema / lymphatic congestion.
Applying medicinal mudpacks to the tailbone and reflex areas (feet) will clear stagnation and toxins in the tissue, allowing the kidneys and adrenal glands to fully absorb and utilize the nutrients necessary to achieve and maintain healthy function without the constant support of extra nutritional supplements.

Topical Mineral & Gem Therapies
Mineral and gemstone therapies have been used throughout history to support healing, protection and restoration of all living things. ‘Placement gemstones’ and healing tools can be used instead of acupuncture needles to stimulate the flow of Vital Force or ‘Qi’.
Gua Sha, translated as ‘to scrape sand’, is the ancient Chinese Medicine manual healing therapy used to stimulate the movement of Vital Force in the body using hand held tools, which are often made of stone or gem materials. Gua Sha massage techniques are often performed with healing oils such as White Flower / Embrocation Oil. Modern cosmetology has adopted the practice of Gua Sha as part of healing facials, and clinical anti-aging and beauty treatments.
Minerals and crushed gemstones can also be steeped in water and diffused into the air, as well as dissolved into a topical medium such as aloe gel for potent healing effects. One such topical mineral / gem healing formula is known as ‘Transform’ by Ohm. This topical formula is an excellent therapy for anyone dealing with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), or other inflammatory disorders caused by increased oxidative stress exposures.
Our modern culture has adopted a very unhealthy practice of using excessive wireless frequencies for communication. The effects of excessive EMF exposures are leading to a sharp increase in numerous acute and chronic health conditions. Supporting the body with therapies that reduce oxidative stress and inflammation are essential for everyone.
Additional topical mineral / gemstone formulas for our modern age include:
- Three Treasures
- After Boost Lung Boosting
- Heart Beat Rhythm and Strength
- Brain Gain Memory Reset
- Good JuJu Diffusing Blend
Many additional formulas are available for either topical, diffusing, or soaking/bath healing therapies.
If you are unsure which formula is best for you, please contact me to discuss the most appropriate prescription.
Many more healing resources are available on the Patient Resources page. Consuming nutrient-dense foods, healthy lifestyle habits including daily exercise, sunlight, restful and restorative sleep, healthy thought patterns, relationships, and environments are necessary to achieve true healing.
